I absolutely loved my stay here. My first advice would be to book ahead with lots of advance notice. I didn't do this (despite having been warned to do so by other travelers) and called about 4 or 5 days before hand. This meant we had to stay in a dorm the first night and a private room the 2nd... but no big deal, we were just thankful they had SOME room. When we swapped rooms, housekeeping were still in the private room sorting it, but they were more than happy for us to put our bags in there and go out for the day.
The kitchen was good, well equipped which made cooking evening meals easy. Eating out in Tofino was incredibly expensive, so the kitchen, combined with the supermarket about a 5 minute walk away was a god send. The dining room has massive windows that overlook the water, and it's so pretty to sit eating dinner watching the sun set.
The location is great, as mentioned, there's a supermarket near by, plus it's within walking distance from the bus stop and the town.
